I am an RN, working in the surgery department at a small hospital in Lebanon, Oregon. I have been a nurse for 36 years. I have two grown children and 1 grandchild, with another one due in 3 weeks. Five things I can't live without: family, friends, the Oregon coast, healthful well prepared food, books, and good conversation. Last summer I went to Germany with a friend, where we visited four German exchange students that she had hosted over past years. We had a fabulous time. That was my first trip to Europe. Now I want to take a major trip every year! I have owned two vacation rental homes, so I know the issues that a home owner has, who rents out to others. I am considerate of others' property. I enjoy staying in modest, clean accommodations with happy hosts. My motto is The Golden Rule- treat others as you would like to be treated.
